OTTERY St Mary are still bottom of the South West Peninsular League Division 1 East - but Saturday's victory over Appledore has been one of the biggest spurs to the club this season.
Manager Andy Phillips said: "It was a massive boost, this. And really for the first time for some time, I think we are beginning to look good.
"We have been bringing in players left, right and centre. They have been a lot of changes.
"It will take time but I am confident that we shall turn things around. And, as I say, the win over Appledore, has given us a real lift."
